Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Detective Short Stories, July 1938

There's always plenty going on in a Norman Saunders pulp cover. He could pack more action into a cover without making it seem crowded than any other artist I've come across. There's a fine line-up of writers in this issue of DETECTIVE SHORT STORIES, too: Philip Ketchum, Roger Torrey, Wyatt Blassingame, Frederick C. Painton, and more.

I can't even tell who's on which side in this one.

I think the guy manhandling the girl and the guy with the tommy gun are the villains. The guy in the torn white shirt is the hero. That's the way I'd write it, anyway.

There's also a fourth guy, an obvious villain.
